Here are just a very few of the kajillion maps I made from about 11 yrs old through my younger teen years and even my first digital maps!! I can't believe i still have these. I notice one has a reference to Darokin from D&D's Mystara module.. never played but i liked that world map.
Most were made the old fashioned way with pencil and paper and there are a couple forms to show how i kept track of populations etc.. i changed them as i grew the cities so often the paper would wear through from erasing. That one form (last attach.) was made from rub on decals and what i though was a "finepoint" back then... boy was I proud of that hideous form LOL!!
These weren't for show but for my own enjoyment.. and i have notebooks and loose sheets of them stashed all over... as well as rolled up giant size and ever expanding graph paper maps i would lay on and draw for hours. Many have gone missing but I have enough to go through and muse at from time to time. Keeps me in touch with the roots of my mapping passion
